Hi!

Does anyone know what's the correct thread for oil pressure sender in Perkins 4.236? 1/8-27 NPTF or M10x1 k? I couldn't find this information from the manual.

Thanks a lot for the reply!

I'm asking because I already replaced the old sender with 1/8-27NPTF. I was told that's the one.

After that I checked the old sender and it was M10x1k by VDO. There is no guarantee that's the original.

This means that two senders with different threads have been in place already. The hole did still feel tight with 1/8.

So I just should keep on using 1/8 and stop worrying?

Yes keep using 1/8th and yes some vdo are m10 but I know from my supplier of the past he use to give me a small brass adaptor from m10 to 1/8

It's not a pipe thread its unf thread ie 1/8 unified national fine
